            The prevailing theory says that as the climate warms, the oceans will absorb more carbon dioxide, which would shift the pH-balance in the seas, making them more acidic. That would wreak havoc for the sea life which make their shells out of calcium, and for animals further up the food chain that will no longer have anything to eat. And that includes those critters in the middle of the food chain that fishermen catch for a living.

            For the first time, according to Alan Parks, outreach coordinator for the Alaska Marine Conservation Council, scientists are seeing quantifiable evidence that acidic oceans are causing problems for commercial seafood operations, specifically, at the Whiskey Creek shellfish hatchery in Oregon.

Parnell Vetoes 10 Percent of Capital Budget PDF Print E-mail

            Governor Sean Parnell has vetoed about 10-percent of the state capital budget. That's the money for roads, construction and other projects. The governor signed off on $2.8-billion, but vetoed about $300-million worth of projects. The legislature had sent him a capital budget in April that was $3.1-billion in size, which Parnell had called "excessive."

            There is no word as of noon whether any projects for Kodiak Island were vetoed. Tune into KMXT this evening for more on this developing story.

            The deadline passed Tuesday night for filing to run in this year's Primary and General Elections, with a dozen people - from four different political parties - entering the race for governor. Nine people are running for Lieutenant Governor, six for the U-S Senate and four for the U-S House of Representatives.

            But state legislative races are not so heavily contested. Of the 40 House and 10 Senate seats open, 16 races are uncontested.

            Senate President Gary Stevens, a Kodiak Republican, faces no opposition to his return to the capitol. He says the unusually low number of candidates could indicate that the public is reasonably happy with the direction the legislature is headed - and, he says, people are ready to pay less attention to politics.

            Kodiak's House Representative Alan Austerman does not have a primary challenger, but will face Democrat Andy Schroeder in the November General Election.

            During Crab Fest, Governor Sean Parnell was busy with appearances and tours, fundraising and campaigning. He took some time on Friday to speak with Kodiak's press corps before setting out to meet and greet. Parnell took questions on a variety of topics, but he always returned to the main platforms of his office.
